I came across this site searching for a bass review. I have been viewing the articles for a couple of days before joining and have to say glad I found you folks. I am in the Midwest (Chicago) and have been a drummer for 30 years and a bass player (unofficial) for 28 - (cripes I am old) Anyway, I first learned the double bass in 8th grade from a disciple of Rufus Reid...but fell off of lessons due to the economics of the times. I bought my first electric when i was at Illinois State - A 1989 Peavey Fury. Anyway, while looking for a new bass, I just wanted to look up a price for a Double bass because frankly, I remember having fun playing it. So while I am a drummer, I love my bass just as well. I am looking to find new ways of playing my electric, but want to explore some Jazz and obtain a double bass...glad I found you all!
